At 20,500 pounds, the Bomag BF 6615 asphalt paver has a heavier material-handling system, yet remains light enough for many contractors to load in front of a roller on a trailer without requiring transport permits. Hopper capacity is 9 tons. The 6615 has Bomag’s first electrically heated screed, the UNIMAT 2 that paves 8- to 15-foot widths with bolt-on, 400 Brinell hardened steel screed plates. Their Mega-Feed dual-auger system mounts remote augers on the front of the extensions to extend and retract with the screed. Augers are reversible. Video walk-around.
